Right, but there is a difference between out of form players being picked because of supposed big tournament mentality and out of form and in terminal decline players (Sterling, Rashford while he stays at ManU).

Though there probably is something in what you're saying too. Southgate to ManU may be playing a part too if there's any truth in it. Robson abandoned his cageyness in what he knew was his last tournament in '90 and almost went all the way. That's the problem with England managers - the bar has been set so low for so long that historically they've known that making the QF will probably keep them in the job so have tended towards cageyness.

Yes + injury luck.

Maybe I'm giving too much credit to the front-office but no way this is one of those "results are not good enough, let's get a new manager bump" sacking else they'd have reacted at half the season not after 5 good wins in a row.

Sounds like they must have disagreed on the way forward.

Anyway, stupid as ****, I hope they did not give him a 7 year contract too

Shall we do a Euros sweepstake if there's enough interest? Payouts for 1st/2nd and worst team so if you get England you still have a chance of winning something

Are Chelsea really going for the Ipswich Town fella ? When we went for Rodgers at least he had a midtable finish in the top tier.

Seems a bad fit. Obviously a decent manager, but pretty combustible.

With Chelsea's set-up, they clearly just need someone to come in a coach the players for a year or two and have little/no input into transfers in or out, and that isn't De Zerbi.

Tenner works, I'm US so will pay relevant fees assuming most people are UK.

Was worried you were going to suggest 300 quid or something lol

In!

The Chelsea I know and hate would of course sack their manager somewhat unjustifiably, but then they’d be immediately linked to taking someone from Juve, Real Madrid, etc. Now I’m Googling Ipswich Town ffs. Lol Boehly.

I read it as £10 a team with 16 players, 2 teams each.

Yeah I doubt we will get 32 entrants so 16 players with 2 teams each £20 total
